Whether you live in a lavish mansion or in a tiny apartment in Ottawa, at one point you’ll definitely want to redecorate or redesign your home.
Of course, you can make this a challenge of your own if you’re feeling inspired and super creative.
But your home sweet home deserves a cohesive look that expresses your ideas while serving the needs of a functional space—be it a thorough renovation of the entire place or just adding some colorful furniture or materials to a boring space to make it your dream cozy corner.
So how about leaving the job to these amazing Ottawa interior designers which we’ve handpicked to fit your style, taste and budget?
Lisa Goulet Design
Your redecoration project will be in very good hands with Lisa Goulet, as she’s a certified interior decorator and an accredited member of The Canadian Decorators’ Association. Lisa got her start in decorating at a very early age, while moving frequently due to her father’s career in the armed forces, so planning and decorating her new room was always something she looked forward to. Lisa’s goal is to make functional and beautiful rooms that showcase her clients’ personalities and experiences. Just have a look at her portfolio and you’ll see that she uses natural elements and soothing colors that create comfortable yet sophisticated spaces.

Describing herself as a “one-woman-show, Jill of all trades, DIY guru, artist, graphic designer, photographer, writer, comedian, nerd, world traveler, silly mother, and Goddess of RE-decorating”, Tiffany discovered her passion for interior design during her childhood. She’d often reorganize her bedroom as a clever ruse to avoid homework. After living in random places such as a tent in eastern Canada, a condo in North Vancouver and a beach house in Turks & Caicos, Tiffany settled into Ottawa in 2007 and became a certified interior decorator (and proud mother) two years later.
